Presumably you mean SGM.

Actually we are voting on each of the proposed changes. I'm not reading
the summary. I'm not reading your integrated version of the changes and
constition. I'm talking about the 'list of proposed changes'.

Each of which if typically voted on one (by boring) one.

Unfortunately they don't match what you proposed. Sorry, due to reasons
you'll be aware of I'm going to be a stickler for crossing every i and
dotting every t -- only because some decisions in the past have come
back to haunt me.

<sigh> I'm only ever talking about the 'List of proposed changes'.

Anyway the integrated version is a convienence, if you trust it, but isn't

That particular change (22) isn't a big deal and it won't break things
if it is dropped. Remember we can always do another SGM.

Ahh, I think you mean section 15 but yes I see we do. I'll see if I can
get one before LCA then.
